I had this idea over 15 years ago; kinda surprised that no one had used it.



NJ does not have a system where you can find out what config is available/has been used. You send in a wishlist of four options via mail w/ $50. Two weeks later I recvd a postcard telling me what was approved, and that it would be ten weeks until the plates arrived. Another two weeks and they were in hand.
I like it. http://********************/smile/emthup.gif Scott

The purpose of this post is for Scott to show you how much smarter he is than you.

So far, it seems to be working

Re: (HayaCruza)

K = 1000, therefore: 186,000 MPS = speed of light = Lightspeed

Scott, You should have a sticker (3"x3") on your rear window with this image.


Glad you finally got it. I knew you were wanting it, so good to see it come to fruition. http://********************/smile/emthup.gif

Small edit there, Linc. Figure you were posting after many holiday beers...

Thanks Scott - late night. May have to do the same myself - have a minor in Astrophysics so I kinda' like this stuff. Hey! Off topic - 3" custom exhaust this week. You'll really like this one - will post some pics.

KM for KILO Miles is wrong on so many different levels....

186K MPS or 186K-MPS would have went so much further.

How often do you really do calculations using C in non-metric units?

K is for 1000, not for kilo. Others seem to get this.
I don't think personalized plates have to blatantly communicate a message.
NJ only allows for seven spaces/characters total.
I guess since we use the metric system every day here in the states, I should have done better. I should just order the full metric conversion dash gauge kit...

And I use C in non-metric units everyday while perfecting my formula for transparent aluminum.

That was my 1st thought. Pretty much a Physics fail. or just "FAIL" as the kiddies like to say these days.

Too bad they only offer 7 letters on the plate.

I originally read it as 186km (kilometers) per second. That's closer to the speed of light through my failed angle gear.

Be warned...my sense of humor becomes increasingly more dry as the subject matter becomes more cerebral in nature.
